Group Run

We had our first group run from our house this morning. We are having a cool spell in Phoenix and the weather as absolutely perfect, mid-70's, awesome for a run in June.  We ran over to the canal, 3 miles to the gas station where we stopped for water and back again. It was so awesome running and chatting and not worrying about pace.

Once home,  I pulled out my new Keurig single cup coffee maker that I had bought for just these occasions, ice tea,  Costco muffins,watermelon and cantaloupe.  I loved showing people how they could choose their flavor of coffee, and how to work the Keurig to make their coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker and wanted to offer people coffee that wasn't stale and was elated when a co-worker told me about the Keurig. It can make hot chocolate and tea too.  I'll have to look for other variety packs once I start getting low.

Hanging around outside drinking ice tea and eating muffins was a perfect start to the day. I only wish I had a picture of our group to share.

Happy Running!

That sounds like such a fun morning! I like the idea of sharing a snack after the run! I like your new template, too!

Back again! If you want pages listed at the top (I think that's what you meant by tabs in your blog comment), go to Dashboard, Design/Add and Arrange Page Elements page, add a gadget and add a page. Hope that helps!

Was it you that first blogged about "What the Runner Saw? I just saw it on your sidebar. I really like that podcast and I was trying to remember who mentioned it.

Thanks for the post and for the motivation... I've been debating whether or not to join the local road runners' club. Seems like that kind of thing was a blast for you. I'm gonna give it a shot, too.

So, I may have missed it - but was this an informal group run or was it with EVR or ARR? I'm a member of EVR, but I've sort of fallen out of habit with running with them.
